Not the best show I've seen, but still a nice venue
Feb 2020
Not every show that you see will be your favorite, but I still like Mad Cow Theatre. Located in downtown Orlando, there are several find places to eat nearby, so it's easy to make a night out of going to a play. Parking is ample as well, and check out any discounts that Mad Cow may have currently with either restaurants or parking establishments. Both theatre spaces are intimate and drinks and some snacks are also available.

Fantastic Productions!
Jan 2019 • Couples
Coming from Cleveland where we have Playhouse Square, that was our area for entertainment. It is the largest performing arts center in the United States outside of New York. So coming to Florida it took time to find all the places with plays.

The Mad Cow Theatre is wonderful, they have great productions and two theaters inside. One has about 160 seats and the other more intimate seating has about 50-60 seats.

We have seen quite a few plays so far, everything from a serious drama to a comedy play.

It is a non profit supported with public funds. Give this little jem a try it is well worth your time. There is something for everyone here!!

Professionally mounted, seldom produced plays ; Excellent productions
Oct 2018 • Family
Mad Cow is a professional theatre that serves the downtown Orlando area known as Church Street Station. The facility is most pleasant to attend, it's a well designed intimate playhouse akin to Off-Broadway theatres in New York.
Here you will see productions that are intelligent, entertaining and beautifully produced.

Great theater at a reasonable price
Mar 2018 • Couples
We have been season subscribers for the last couple of years. There are two theaters; one that seats around 200 people, and the other theater is much smaller. The actors are very good and the sets and props are very creative. Occasionally they have a "Talk Back" after performances. The actors take questions from the audience, which makes them very approachable. The selection of plays are very eclectic. They even had a production of "Hair". I highly recommend giving Mad Cow a try and become one of the Herd.

Gem of a theatre in downtown Orlando; brilliant production of "Silent Sky"
Feb 2018 • Couples
This is our second time going to a production at Mad Cow and "Silent Sky" was a hit! We are not local residents, but love theatre, so when we discovered that it was opening night for "Silent Sky" (and that we had an open night in our schedule) we immediately purchased tickets. Solid acting, creative sets and a marvelous script combine to make an enjoyable evening in the intimate performance space. If you're visiting the Orlando area, make certain to check out their website for current productions.

I have been going to Mad Cow Theatre for many years, have volunteered and supported this fabulous theatre! Whether a play, musical or cabaret, each is fabulous! The diversity of shows and amazing stage sets will draw you into each performance!
There is nothing Mad Cow cannot do!
Breathtaking shows will enthrall you every time! Go and no one will question why we need to support the arts and live theatre!
There is a limited bar and cookies if you get the munchies.

Good solid performances time and again...
Dec 2017 • Couples
I've been attending shows here for a couple of years now. The actors and singers are either pros or semipros. Last nights Christmas Carol show by four talented singers definitely put some cheer into my holiday season. I generally come when the subject matter appeals to me. With three theatres in this Church St. Location productions can run simultaneously, some can be a little risky with subject matter. So you can pick and choose. Alcoholic beverages are available in the large lobby. Discounted garage parking is available. Give it a try!

Fun Evening with Friends
May 2017 • Friends
Every year the Mad Cow brings compelling and entertaining theatre to Orlando. One of the most fun offerings is the "It Was A Very Good Year" cabarets. This year they chose to transport audiences to 1970 & 1980 in two shows, each lasting about 45 minutes. I was fortunate to catch both. The cast of four was amazing! A blonde, a brunette and a red head along with a gentleman all singing and spouting facts from days gone by. It was a great way to spend an evening with friends and we look forward to the upcoming season at this venue!

Wonderful Facililty - Excellent Performance
Jan 2017 • Couples
We found Mad Cow through an on-line search of events upcoming. I ordered the tickets on-line through their web site. We arrived at 7 for a 7:30 curtain and waited in the spacious lobby, enjoying some excellent coffee ($3 ea). Once the doors opened, we were seated quickly and settled in for an excellent performance.
The theater is modern and the seats slope up away from the stage so that everyone had a nice view, unobstructed by tall guests seated in front of them!
The manager announced that due to a personal emergency, the female lead was unable to perform and that another actress would play the part using a script book. We prepared for the worst, but the actress did a marvelous job and her use of the script was unobtrusive and fluid - it did not adversely impact the performance at all!
The play "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" was a little lame but the acting was very good.
The theater is on the second floor. Elevator, stairs and escalator are available.
I would highly recommend this place to any visitors to Orlando.
Tickets were $15 ea with no "handling fee"
Web site was excellent and ticket purchase offered seat selection map.
